The rumors are true. There are superheroes living among us, and they’re ready to tell their stories. No, not Superman or Wonder Woman this time. Instead, it’s RoboDad, a retired veteran named Tracy Williams, changing his world through the power of high-tech braces.

Williams is living with a spinal cord injury that left the muscles on his left side weakened and prone to spasm or even giving out. The 40-year-old has endured two neck surgeries and a back surgery. Disks C-7 through C-3 in his spine are fused with a titanium plate. Much of his life is spent in a wheelchair or using a cane for support. But thanks to months of using a special therapy system called Bioness at Lodi Memorial Hospital West, the father of six is now spending a lot more time on his own two feet.
